Coronavirus update #25

We are pleased to advise once more there has been no outbreak of Coronavirus here at Maroba!

We have recently had further advice from the NSW Chief Medical Officer, Dr Kerry Chant and until further notice aged care facilities in local government areas (LGAs) that have been designated as Covid-19 hotspots are not to allow visitors and unfortunately Newcastle falls within this category.

We understand this is a very difficult time for everyone and we know that all our residents do miss their face-to-face visits. Therefore, as soon as we receive the all clear from the Health authorities we will promptly re-assess how we re-establish our visiting program.

Please remember that FaceTime and Zoom remain an option to maintain connection with your loved ones. Please contact Reception between the hours of 8.30am-5pm to make an appointment.
